Two Porcupine type casemates - may 1940

Two Porcupine type casemates [S-type] along the defense canal than ran just in front of the Peel-Raamline. These casemates were suitable for a light or sometimes heavy machinegun and usually had three loopholes, covering 210 degrees of the field of fire. The casemate in front clearly shows impact markings of machinegun and PAK fire.
